... but i'll make an exception when James Rivera (Helstar, Malice, Flotsam & Jetsam, Vicious Rumors, Seven Witches, etc...) is the singer!
it's now official! i'm the new guitarist in Denim & Leather!
my band Season Of Mourning played a show with these guys in march... about two weeks later i get a call from my singer... apparently Jeff, the bass player from D&L called my singer to ask if it was ok to ask me if i'd be interested in joining the band .
needless to say, this is a HUGE honor for me to have the opportunity to play alongside one of my favorite singers. especially being asked to join from out of nowhere.
really looking forward to this project! i have a whole lot of songs to learn now . hopefully i can do them justice, as the bar is set pretty high with the caliber of past and current players this band has had.
this was the setlist from the last string of shows
1. Hammerhead - Flotsam and Jetsam
